KVGM "The Last Wave" (1/13/19)

Image
Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio in sunny Aqua City. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.
Once again, we reflect on important themes in living a fulfilled life, including how to keep your cool during a zombie apocalypse, taking time to set up your own person exhibition mode, the serenity of the ancient ruin, and the feeling of champoo (champagne + shampoo). All this and more, backed to an incredible set of smooth video game music.

This week on the Last Wave, are you a Street Fighter...or a Street Lover? Are we lost in a perpetual cycle of violence and ignorance, or can we break free and embrace love? Who composed the soundtrack to Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007? Those questions, and more, as we sail down the strait to Relaxation Beach, listening to 100% smooth jams.
